This Is The Day

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

—Psalm 118:24

 

I watched as the juvenile heron walked on the edge of the water.

He was so small—at least when compared to what he would someday be.

You see, he’s not just any heron.

He’s a Great Blue Heron.

There will come a day when he will be large and graceful with flowing feathers off the top of his head.

That day has not come yet, but God has made it so that it will.

We have an internal map made by God, as well.

We are babies and children for a few short years, then we become adults.

When we are “born again” as a new Christian, we begin a growth process, also.

When we accept Jesus as our Savior, we are “new” Christians.

We are young in our faith, but we are on a pathway of change as we learn to trust God more and more.

It is okay to be new.

We will be different one day.

God has made it so that we will.

 

 

rejoice and be
